Comedian Jon Stewart took Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to task Tuesday for the Senate majority leader’s selective attacks on “corrupt” and politically active billionaires.

“Corruption is a billionaire who spends their money on s**t you don’t like,” Jason Jones, a “Daily Show” correspondent, joked with the host.

Free speech, Jones continued, is “a billionaire who spends money on s**t you do like.”

Reid has made it something of a mission in the Senate to attack and “expose” brothers Charles and David Koch for “trying to buy our democracy.”

The Kochs, Reid said, are to be condemned for pouring millions of dollars into political causes that they support.

However, in an interview last week with NBC News’ Chuck Todd, Reid defended politically active casino tycoon Sheldon Adelson, another billionaire known for pouring money into politics.

“I know Sheldon Adelson — he’s not in this for money,” Reid said.“He’s in it because he has certain ideological views.”

Stewart found this discrepancy in Reid’s view of politically active billionaires too much to pass on and spent an entire segment on his program Tuesday night mocking it.

Adelson’s ”got ideological views,” Stewart said, making fun of Reid.“If those happen to line up with the money, mazel tov!”

Harry Reid, and pretty much everyone in congress is so full of shit. Because one of his buddies in Vegas donates to the "correct" causes, that's just fine. Two-faced hypocrite is being kind to him.

These two lines really do sum it up:

“Corruption is a billionaire who spends their money on s**t you don’t like,” Jason Jones, a “Daily Show” correspondent, joked with the host.

Free speech, Jones continued, is “a billionaire who spends money on s**t you do like.”

When you post irrelevant nonsense on a thread, don't complain when someone calls you on it. Instead, put on your big boy pants and try to stay on topic. Maybe even defend your friend Harry. Instead of trying to deflect and divert by whining about fox news and rush linbaugh.

He's a politician. What hasn't he lied about. But if you insist, he took an oath of office to uphold the constitution. He has not done that at all well.
